They say my 2007 nitro r/t running to cool. Wondering what it could be. Also will this mess up my vehicle.


There is no reason for a car run "too cool". Actually, it's physically impossible. Be carful: your thermostat might be not working correctly, you may have some cooling system problem and might not warn you when your car get's overheated. Read some information on Internet.

Blue smoke from my cherokee at 210 degrees


Hi there:
I suspect it is a exhaust valve guide problem. When an exhaust guide is loose in the engine or leaking oil, the oil never enters the combustion chamber. Oil drops through the guide and into the exhaust port of the head. The exhaust stream then carries the unburnded oil out to the exhaust. As the exhaust system warms up, the oil then burns off and leaves as blue smoke.

Remove the valve cover and take a flashlight and closely look at all the valve seals and guides, especially the exhaust guides and seals.

Turbo


if the performance is the same but no kick when the revs start to rise, it could be the internals of the turbo are worn out, have you had abnormal whistling from the turbo which indicate worn bearings, turbo's last around 100,000 miles before having to be rebuilt, the turbine wears out eventualy as well as the bearings

Lucasia, please know that if you purchase this car, you will have more fun than you know. Things that you need to know before buying one can be found here: http://wikilec.9600.org/index.php/Buyers_guide

This will help you immensely. Although this car is fun, it can be quite expensive to repair. There are lots of parts that cross-reference to American cars. You can find a cross-reference list here: http://www.gglotus.org/ggpart/m100xref.htm

There are others as well.

Also, if you don't mind working on cars yourself, you can save tons of money! I know I have.

If you decide to buy, ENJOY ENJOY ENJOY! Not only will it be fun to drive, it is a rare car as well - 3855 built - another 800 were built later and those are considered the S2 version (if i remember correctly).
